The Electromechanical Engineering Program was created on January 2th 1945, being the first professors Alberto López Zamora, Antonio Prieto Laurens, Eugenio Pérez Molphe and C.J. Brooks. In 1960 the third year of the program was opened, graduating the first cohort in 1962. Since then the program has been consolidated so that it accomplished its first CACEI accreditation in 2002. Electromechanical Engineer is the professional that meets the scientific, technical and humanistic to take advantage of the most efficient energy resources for the benefit of society. Its scope is focused on the conversion, transmission, distribution and use of energy in all its forms. Uses knowledge coupled with his ability to reason for the planning, analysis, manufacture, operation and maintenance of mechanical-electrical systems, administered with a vision of total quality human resources, technical and material resources without damaging the integrity of the people, equipment and ecology. Looking for overcoming daily technical and humanistic to serve the society in which he lives, all within an ethical framework.


The mission of the program is the comprehensive education of innovative professionals of mechanical and electrical engineering, capable to contribute to the sustainable development of global society.
